    • Couture, Sharp, Neal, Kunitz, Pietrangelo, OEL, Crawford....Byfuglien was tough to cut but his +/- could be bad this year...even though Neal has gone to Nashville, it's without Trotz so they could be an offensive team this year and he's option #1.

      • I would do the same but keep J. Thornton instead of Neal.
        Thornton is a perennial top 5 assist producer. In the past 7 years James Neal has only gone over 60 points twice and both were while he was playing with Malkin. He will now be the primary scorer for the preds and play with Mike Ribeiro. Therefore, he will play against teams best defenses and won't be with Malkin this year. In the last 7 years Thornton has had over 60 points 6 times and the one year he didn't he only played 48 games and still had 40 points.
